Jingle the Elf's Canned Food Challenge Dec 5-9Jingle the Elf's Canned Food Challenge

WHO WILL WIN?

Here is how we ended Day 4 on our canned food drive: 4th grade still has the lead...but just barely! Will they sweep the week?

Students can bring non-perishable food items for Juingle the Elf's Canned Food Challenge during the week of December 5th - December 9th. We will keep a daily count of food items collected by grade level. The grade level with the highest total percentage of items will participate in Grouch and Cindy Lou Who event.

This food drive will support Bedford Goodfellows who have been serving Bedford Township since 1954. The Bedford Goodfellows work, in conjunction with the Bedford community, to provide food for individuals and families residing in Bedford Township. The food collected will be used to support Holiday food baskets.

Thank you for supporting JRE's efforts and the Bedford Goodfellows! May you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!
